We’ll kick off the event at 6 p.m. with an open house where you can visit interactive booths for City departments. Talk with staff about projects and services and ask any questions you may have.
From 7 to 7:30 p.m., Mayor Scott LeMay will deliver his State of the City address, updating residents on the achievements and accomplishments of last year, including 2019 bond program projects, public safety and more.
